A winter break in Normandy offers characterful towns, wild coasts and traditional Christmas markets. Explore Rouen with its red and white lights illuminating the city throughout December, browse over 70 stalls in its Christmas market and try a spot of skating on its open-air ice rink. For something a bit different, visit Château de Miromesnil, the birthplace of author Guy de Maupassant, for festive arts and crafts and a Christmas market beneath the grand château. Paris is enchanting in the winter, with its sparkling lights and creative store-fronts down the Champs Elysees and the range of city Christmas markets, including Le Village de Noël at Les Halles where you can shop, make seasonal crafts and write a letter to Santa.
